"Guru offers simple advice for a complicated world." The headline would have been more accurate if it read: Guru seeks self-aggrandizment by offering advice that could have been designed by simpletons.
For instance: "He is known for tossing out pithy remarks such as: 'Truth is spherical.' " What's spherical is Sri Sri's head up his ass, because that statement means absolutely nothing on its own, outside of his desire to sound profound for the rubes who are fooled by the white-robed holiness act.
Because that's all it is, an act. All the peace and love pabulum is simply a sugar coat on the viral code of his ego, which he seeks to inject in those stupid enough to believe he's anything other than a slick salesman for himself.
L.A. is a fecund field for a spiritual flimflammer like Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. The Los Angeles Basin probably has more need per square mile than any other place on the planet. It's the perfect territory for a new space-daddy to flash his smile and speak in platitudes which are devoid of anything that could be called real wisdom, while still full of all the empty calories you can find in any Hostess Twinkie at the 7-11.
L.A., you now have your new Twinkie guru.
